About the property

Farmhouse in Mont De Marrast, Nr. Mielan, Gers, Midi-Pyrenees, France - Rural Farming Area Surrounded by Beautiful Bastide Villages. Just Over an Hour to the Pyrenees

The house is in the peaceful village of Mont de Marrast. It is very secluded and has plenty of space in the house and the garden to spread out.Up to 14 people can dine comfortably in the kitchen,or loggia or the stone terrace leading off the kitchen.The terrace overlooks the pond,orchard and rose garden. The pool is on the south facing side of the house with views to the Pyrenees. The tennis court is not visible from the house but is just through the orchard. All three drawing rooms have wood-burning stoves and for the winter months there is central heating too.It is a fantastic area for walking and cycling as the roads are so quiet. The area is known for its duck, foie gras armagnac and of course wine. A chef who stayed here told us it is the best equipped kitchen he has been in!

About Jackie Fiducia

We bought this house originally as a second home but loved being here so much we decided to spend more time here and less in England and Hong Kong.We have 4 children now aged 23 to 32 who just love the house.

Jackie Fiducia purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Jackie Fiducia chose Gers

It is a very beautiful rural area with far far fewer people than England.The weather is seasonal but summer arrives in March and continues until the end of October.The winter can be cold but we have eaten lunch outside on Christmas day.The views of the mountains,seen much more often in the winter,are so uplifting.Our family wanted sun,tennis and a pool and ski-ing so this was the perfect area

What makes this farmhouse unique

If we have friends or family here there is so much to do without leaving the house.With all the sporting activities those who are energetic are happy and there is so much space and opportunity for relaxing too.The food is local and fresh and the wine excellent.

We find the journey from Gatwick to Toulouse very quick and easy. Easyjet are a great airline and very rarely late
